My Lunch Time Surprise

A few days ago my visiting teaching companion (who is a SAINT) called and asked if I could be at one of our teachees houses at 12:00 today. I told her no problem. I figured we were going for a visiting teaching appointment. Well I arrived to find friends from church and a yummy lunch prepared. Not only that but at another friend's house around the corner were two husbands who were watched all of our kids....on a work day! Talk about awesome husbands! After a delicious lunch, I received a pedicure (thank you Erica!) and got to open up wonderful baby gifts! Some of them were even handmade!! I just about bawled my eyes out while the food was being blessed and not because I am a very due hormonal pregnant mama but because I was so touched by their thoughtfulness. It just felt so nice to have this little baby and my new motherhood responsibilities celebrated like when Carter and Tay were soon to arrive. I am so grateful for the ladies who put my little luncheon together. My spirits were boosted, my tummy fed, and my toes polished...now I can have this baby!

I'm glad you have great friends to take care of you Corinne! And every woman needs a great pedicure before giving birth! I'm so glad you got yours. We're thinking of you and can't wait to hear your story and see pictures of new baby Hilton! Love you girl!

It was so fun! I'm so glad that I got to come. And yes, your VT companion IS a saint. I think she's on everyone's "favorite people list." You deserved every bit of attention you got. :) We can't wait for the baby to come!

Congratulations--that is so cool! I probably would have cried too! It's nice to know someone is watching out for you, when we can't come over and help!
